Alumni Profile: Travis Kennedy

Program: Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Certificate

"The acute care pediatric nurse practitioner post graduate certification program at Rush University provided a robust curriculum. This training improved my clinical skills in addition to encouraging professional development in multiple ways. One way that professional development was achieved was by reflecting on and discussing topics such as implicit bias, compassion fatigue, social determinants of health, ethical dilemmas, and several others. The training increased my confidence to make an impact not only for my patients, but within the profession at a local and national level. The faculty and staff are highly skilled and knowledgeable while also being approachable and supportive of the student. Completing this program was one of the best professional decisions that I have made."
